Twisted Two-Step Tour * Review * Giveaway * Author Julia Bramer

I’ve
always wanted to see The Great Wall.
China?
Why
not?
So
they went to China. Seven glorious days alone with him, and although the trip
got off to a rocky start, they were the best days of her life.
When
they arrived in Beijing, the smog was so bad it stung to breathe, and they
stayed inside the hotel for two days, which in the end wasn’t a terrible
hardship because they spent most of the time naked and screwing around.
Then
it rained, the smog disappeared and they headed to The Great Wall. On the way
there, they bought a backpack and filled it with food and water and a bottle of
champagne, and they hiked up and down the winding wall for two hours, leaving
the other tourists behind.
Rebecca
had never seen him as enthusiastic, a permanent grin plastered on his handsome
face, and after another hour, they stopped at one of the watchtowers to eat
lunch.
The
view was magnificent, the stone fortification zigzagging and meandering like a
long, silver necklace as far as she could see over the countryside, and as Nate
animatedly ticked off statistics about the site from the guidebook, they
hungrily devoured peanut butter sandwiches, chips and cookies.
Then
he popped open the warm bottle of champagne and toasted to their future, and
his lips curled mischievously and eyes flashed white hot. Rebecca knew the look
well, and he hopped to his feet and pulled her up with him.
What
do you think? He asked in a soft and husky voice that sent shivers up her
spine.
Glancing
at the way they’d come, her clit pulsed and juices flowed. They’d become daring
over the months, sneaking away to her old room at her parents’ house or locking
the door at the office when the mood presented. Risky, naughty, so unlike her
but so incredibly hot, and since they hadn’t seen another soul for a long time,
Rebecca jumped on him.
Laughing,
he grasped her ass, carried her to the wall’s ledge and set her on it.
This
should be good, he smirked. I never thought I’d see The Great Wall let alone
fuck on it.
Chuckling,
she responded, There are a lot of things I never thought I’d do until I met
you.
 
For
Rebecca, no words had been truer. No longer a doormat, she was free to step
over the imaginary line and often did, the world a thrilling, titillating
playground instead of a dull, tedious obstacle course to navigate oh-so
carefully.
And
there she was on top of the world with the sinfully sexy Nathan Butler. He
kissed her feverishly and wriggled off her pants and panties, and he spread her
legs wide to the skies and lavishly licked her sodden flesh.
There
was nothing to compare it to, there on the tower at The Great Wall. Dizzying,
like the endless loops of bricks and stone hugging the green hillside and
snaking over the horizon, and then he pulled down his jeans just enough to
liberate his swollen cock and rammed into her. Her pleasurable cry echoed off
the knolls and he drove hard and fast. Panting, groaning and pushing her higher
and higher, they exploded together, an exquisite, blinding eruption that
blasted through her and left her crumbling in its wake.

Nathan Butler knows the score. People like him don’t get to be happy. They don’t belong.

Raised by his drug-addicted mother, Nate was kicked around a lot and abandoned and disappointed so many times he can’t afford to care about anyone or anything, his existence a tedious, monotonous two-step. Quick, quick, slow, slow, run, run, walk, walk. Over and over again.

Until he meets Mason Lord. Mase is the only person who manages to crack Nate’s defenses. For the first time in his shitty life, Nate has a real friend. He trusts Mase and even grows to love him, but like always, it doesn’t last.

Killed in a tragic work accident, Mase’s death is just one more disappointment. And when the company refuses to accept responsibility for it, Nate’s heartache turns to hate and he vows to make it right the only way he knows how.

Revenge.

For Rebecca Fox, a beautiful and talented corporate attorney, Mason Lord’s death is simply an accident. Despite the very believable eyewitness testimony from the drop-dead gorgeous Nathan Butler, she successfully defends the company against a wrongful death lawsuit, upping her chances of becoming a full partner at the most prestigious law firm in San Francisco.

The partnership is all she wants, the cornerstone of her long-term plan. Then Nathan Butler unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep and changes everything, her life becoming a thrilling, titillating playground instead of a dull obstacle course to navigate oh-so carefully.

Yet nothing is as it seems. A collision of desires and worlds, a twisted two-step, but what Rebecca doesn’t know can’t hurt her.

Or can it?

Writing Rave

pizap.com10.99905172409489751396450600388

 3.5 Roses

Overall the writing was  very good. The title of the novel being the perfect example of how I believe the book read. The chapters flowed just like a two-step dance. Starting off slow, fast in the middle, then back to slow.

The novel begins with a prologue. An erotic scene in the POV of the Female lead in the story, Rebecca.

At first this scene seemed out of place to me, but as I continued to read the story it came to make sense later in the read.

Twisted Two-Step takes the reader into the Erotic Romance of Rebecca and Nate. Told by each characters Point of View. This may take a forward look or a past look at thier life. Which to me was all part of the two-step of their Romance.

The author did have a few grammer errors. For example, Rebecca’s father calls her sweat pea vs sweet pea in one chapter. In other areas it seemed a word was added or not added when needed to be. While reading sometimes I got confused on the couples timeline. Just how many weeks, months, etc had passed since this scene or that scene.

To be honest it took me a while to get into the read. Then in the middle the pace of the story really picked up, time in weeks and months went faster, and then slowed again. All another reason I compare the read to the dance.

Tears

3.0 Teardrops

As all of you know I am the crazy emotional reader. I did good for the first half of the book. Then when all the real drama between the book couple got going the tears were just pouring from my eyes.

I wanted to be on Rebecca’s team. Nate is Hot, Sexy, and really makes her Happy. At times you love him, at other times you really don’t like him very much. Love is all about give and take, but as soon as it seems Nate may be taking two steps forward in the right direction, then he takes two steps back in the wrong direction.

Romance

4.0 on the Love Meter

WOW!!! This couple could not keep their hands or any other part of their bodies off each other. Once these two found each other, there was no holding back. They were like magnets, their energies fusing togther to be one. Anywhere, anytime…

Rebecca loves his manhood, and Nate loves her breasts. So get ready for a lot of smexy moments with these body parts…

Overall I would give this read a 3.5

When I won the annual Eagle Elite College Scholarship lottery, I was thrilled. After all, my grandma had just died and I wanted to take care of my aging grandpa — he couldn’t be a farmer in Wyoming forever. And graduating from Eagle Elite meant opportunity.

But I wasn’t counting on meeting Nixon.

Nor was I counting on the rules of the Elect.

1. Do not touch The Elect.
2. Do not look at The Elect.
3. Do not speak to The Elect.

And worst of all? Don’t discover the secret they hide, because in the end, you may just realize… it’s about you.

 4 roses – mafia romance – secret love

e36ac935bdf0c690662868ffd2c36d48[1]

I clearly was not prepared for an intense modern day type of Romeo and Juliet secret romance.  Totally caught off guard and glued to the plot as it thickened with suspenseful characters full of snotty mean girls and dangerous bad boys.  Yet through it all I fell for some swoon worthy alpha male heroes who would give their lives to protect their family and friends.  Honor bound and sworn to secrecy the Elite are a possessive clique who will ensure the safety of their kin.

“Hurt is everywhere; as humans we practically drown in its essence, yet we all pretend like it doesn’t exist.”  ~Trace Rooks~

4 secret forbidden hearts – couples ‘bound’ by love

Clever secrets are being revealed as this “familia” comes together to protect and cherish their own kind.  Pasts are remembered, feelings are shaped and this couple is finally portraying their true feelings for each other even at the high cost of the safety and recognition of their Mafia Families.

“Sometimes… it’s the emotional wounds that hurt the most.  Cuts heal, bruises fade – but broken hearts?  They carry scars for a lifetime.”  ~Trace Alfero~

“I need you like I need my heart to pump blood through my body, like I need air to breathe, like we need gravity.  You are my gravity.  Being with you makes me feel centered and whole.”  ~Nixon Abandonato~

As this college couple explore their secret hidden romance, intense feelings arise and emotions pour from their souls as they fight to control their attraction for each other.  When the past slowly reveals these two loving souls their hunger grows and their bodies betray themselves.  Nixon has some extremely hot eager kisses he lays on his leading lady.  Trace cannot get enough of her main man’s possessive embraces and protective arms.

“Why did he have to be so beautiful?  Why did his touch make me want to sell my soul?”  ~Trace~

“I would have kissed you harder,  fought for you more, stolen you away, taken your virtue, made myself so permanently etched on your person that every time you took a breath it was my scent that was permeating the air.”  ~Nixon~

Hunted Synopsis

Tess Monroe is a werecat on the run. Pursued by Hunters, an elite group of humans tasked with extinguishing the entire shifter species, Tess stumbles upon a safe haven. Due to a long-standing feud, she receives an icy reception. Determined to reunite with her loved ones, she accepts the help of, Nate, a werewolf. The attraction to Nate is instantaneous, and Tess trusts him despite his packs archaic beliefs and traditions.

 Werecats can’t be trusted. They are the enemy. That’s the motto Nate Tucker grew up with, but when he meets Tess, he can’t help feeling protective of the beautiful feline. He knows he shouldn’t care about her, and he shouldn’t be attracted to her, let alone desire her, but the feelings are undeniable. Tasked with escorting her to a nearby pride, Nate must fight his passion for Tess. An interspecies romance is forbidden. But as they unravel secrets from the past and discover new threats, a taboo romance is the least of their concerns.

Hunter Excerpt

Excerpt 1

Nate pulled off at an exit. It was nearly three in the morning. He was exhausted, hungry, and needed a break from the endless darkness of the freeway. He scanned the rearview mirror, ensuring no one was behind him. The road was dark and vacant. It had been for miles, but he had to check to be sure. Better safe than sorry.

     He didn’t want to stop for a long time. There was no doubt in his mind that they were being pursued. As long as they kept moving, they should be okay. Although, he swore at times that the Hunters had supernatural tracking abilities. It was the only thing that could explain how they found shifters sometimes.

     Nate drove up to a twenty-four hour Taco Bell and came to a stop just short of the drive thru. He looked over at his passenger. Tess was sound asleep. Her long hair draped over her face like a curtain. He took a moment to appreciate the soft rise and fall of her chest that accented the swell of her breast. She truly was magnificent.

     Reaching out, he tucked loose strands of hair behind her ear, letting his finger trail down her silky cheek. Tess stirred, her eyes fluttering for a moment as she leaned into his touch. What am I doing, he wondered as her breathing evened. She’s a werecat, and I’m a wolf, any feelings I have are forbidden, he reminded himself again. Why do I have to keep reminding myself to keep my hands off her? I need to find a wolf when I get home and get the whole mating process over. At least that way if she comes back, I won’t have to worry about whatever this is.

     He moved his hand away from her, instantly missing the contact. Wake her up and ask her if she’s hungry. How hard is that? His hand reached out for her again, but he jerked it back. No. Don’t touch her. Say her name. Do something, but for the love of God don’t touch her.

     “Tess,” he said huskily.

     “Hmmm,” she murmured as she sat up with a yawn. Her eyes blinked open a small smile pulling at her lips as she met his gaze.

     He cleared his throat. Don’t make eye contact. “I was going to get something to eat. Do you want anything?” he asked, pointing to the empty drive thru.

     Tess squinted at him for a moment as she slowly took in their surroundings. “Oh. Yeah. Sure,” she mumbled as she yawned again. “Where are we?”

     “Ohio. Just crossed over the border. Thought we could get a quick bite and I’ll need some more specifics from you about where we’re going,” Nate explained.

     “I have the coordinates. We are going just outside of Cincinnati. We shouldn’t be too far from it,” she sighed. “Are we being followed?”

     “Not that I can tell. The roads been empty behind us for some time.” He pulled out his cell phone and opened up his Google maps app. “Here. Why don’t you put in the coordinates and I’ll order us some food. Want anything in particular?”

     Tess squinted and then wrinkled her nose. “Taco Bell?”

     He shrugged. It sounded good to him.

     “A couple beef tacos,” she mumbled as she took his phone.

     Her slender fingers grazed against his and he closed his eyes, trying to ignore the electricity rippling through his hand from the touch. He shook his head and pulled forward through the drive thru.

     “Can I help you?” a male voice crackled over the intercom.

     “Five beef tacos.” He’d eat what she didn’t since she hadn’t given a number. Surely she was starved too. “A burrito supreme, chili cheese burrito, two chicken tacos, and two Pepsi’s.”

     “Hungry?” Tess asked, arching her brow.

     “Yes,” he grinned. Anytime he transitioned, he always burned a ton of calories, and he needed to replace them. It was like that for all werewolves. He wondered if the same were true for werecats. Surely they had similarities as much as they did differences.

     “According to this we’ll reach the pride in about thirty minutes,” Tess said, drawing him out of his thoughts.

     Wow. They were close. He dug his wallet out and drove to the window, passing a card to the attendant. She promptly swiped it and handed the card and food over. The scent of cheap taco meat filled the car, and he inhaled greedily. His stomach rumbled as his mouth salivated. I can’t wait to dig into my burrito. Nate set the bag between them and drinks in the cup holder.

     “Hop back on the highway,” she instructed.

     “Got it,” he replied as he unwrapped a burrito. He took a large bite out of his food and swallowed it.

     Tess set the phone down on her knee and let out a long breath. She ran a hand through her hair before picking up a taco from the bag.

     “I’m sure it will be okay,” he tried to assure. “I’m not dead yet,” he teased around another bite.

     She gave him a small smile before taking a nibble out of her food. “It’s not so bad,” she commented as she lifted her soda up and took a sip from the straw. “I just want to get to the pride. My family… we were close. It would be nice to know they’re okay—that they made it out. It makes me sick to think of what might have happened.”

     His own stomach twisted at the thought. He’d seen what hunters did to those they captured, and it wasn’t pretty. After they’d tortured them for information they killed them and then burned the village and all of its occupants. If he had a quarter for all the forest fires hunters had started he’d be rich. Not only were they destroying shifters, but they were harming natural wildlife too. It was disgusting.

     “You’ll be safe there,” Tess commented drawing him from his thoughts.

     “Your prides let go of the feud?” he asked curiously. The wolves certainly hadn’t. You’d think it happened yesterday.

     Tess set her food down on the wrapper. “You don’t know what really happened do you?”

     Nate took a sip of his drink and looked at her. He knew the story his mother had told him. Given her hatred, he was beginning to wonder how accurate it was. Anger and racism could blind you from the truth. What if he had it all wrong? What if the wolves were spreading stories to keep the werecats at bay? But why?

     “The story I’ve always been told is that a community of werecats and werewolves lived within thirty miles of each other. They were working together to stop an attack from the Hunters.  During a mission, a male werecat raped a female werewolf. The werecats refused to bring him to justice and when the Hunters attacked the werewolf pack, the cats never came to help. A lot of wolves died in that attack, including my grandma’s sister and younger brother,” he summarized. His mom had given a much more detailed account, but he didn’t see the need to retell it to Tess.

     Tess clucked her tongue and pursed her lips. “Um. No.”

     “No?” he questioned.

     “That’s not what happened,” she stated.

     “I’ll admit my story could be wrong—”

     “It is,” she interrupted adamantly.

     “And you know this how?” he asked. “You weren’t there.”

     “Neither were you,” she countered. “I’ve seen the evidence to support the werecats side.”
     “From a feud that’s lasted decades? How?” he asked skeptically. She was full of it now. There was no way she could know what had transpired all those years ago.

     “First of all, the wolf and the cat weren’t in a relationship. They were good friends. The pack only assumed they were having an affair, and made up the story about the rape because they couldn’t stand the idea of an interspecies relationship, and wanted to make sure no one else got any ideas. And to make sure that there was a rift between the two species. Prior to the attack on the pack, the pride was under siege. There was no one to come to the packs aide because the pride had been destroyed. By the time the pride survivors made it there the pack had been desolated, and any survivors had fled.”

     “You don’t know the truth behind your story anymore than I do behind mine,” he remarked.

     She lifted her brow, silently challenging him. “Actually, I do. There were thirteen survivors from the pride. The werecat and wolf being two of them. He had family on the west coast, and he brought her there too. They joined a pride in Washington State, the same pride that I grew up in.”

     Nate did a double take. Her eyes held his and her jaw was set firmly in place. She was serious. Is that what had happened? Why would she lie? Why would the wolves lie? What was the point in holding onto a feud for generations? To keep different species from mating. That seemed a little farfetched, or did it? Even now, interspecies mingling between different genders were strongly discouraged. There was the occasional hookup, but same species didn’t truly mate most of the time, sure they could still procreate, but there was a difference between finding your true mate and mating out of obligation to duty. Why would anyone think that two different species could truly mate, let alone have children? Was that even possible? Probably not. How would that even work?

     “Wow,” he stated unsure what else to say. What could he say? “And your not just yanking my chain?” he asked.

     She shook her head. “No.”
     “Why would the wolves lie? What do they gain from carrying on the feud with the werecats? Sanctuary needs as much help as it can get,” he thought aloud. It didn’t make sense.

     Tess looked away and out the window. “I’m sure they have their reasons,” she said after a long moment. “It’s possible that they really believe that’s what happened too. I mean, the pack was destroyed except for a few. If the one’s who made up the lie all perished, then there would be no one to set the story straight.”

     Could what she said be true? Questions whirled through his mind. If what she said were true, then they needed to figure out a way to get the truth out there. That was the only way the feud would ever end—at least for the wolves. He opened his mouth to speak, but the GPS spoke first instructing them to take the next exit.

     Tess squirmed in her seat, squinting to see in the darkness. There was no way she was going to talk to him now. She was too worried about her family. Not that he could blame her. Later. We’ll talk about it later, he promised himself.

Tess tells it

 

Excerpt 2

Nate opened the door for Tess as he led her into the TV room. He smiled and motioned to the large couch. She took a seat and got comfortable.

He picked up the remote and eased down onto the opposite end of the couch. As much as he’d like to sit close to her, Tess’ perfume was intoxicating. He could be easily overwhelmed with desire for the werecat. Better to watch the movie at a distance. With the click of a few buttons, he brought up the red Netflix screen.

“You did it,” she laughed as she shifted so she could look at him.

“It took a little work.” Liar. You spent the better part of the afternoon rerouting wires and fiddling around with this. He handed the remote over to her. “Ladies choice.”

She leaned forward, her fingers grazing over his as she accepted the controller. He gritted his teeth as heat engulfed him. His cock hardened at her touch and his wolf roared to life, ready to claim her. He inhaled sharply. The desire for her seemed to be getting worse. Would it be so bad to give in? He could get her out of his system and then he could mate with a nice wolf in a few weeks. Would she be open to the idea? If they both agreed to a fling with no strings attached, it could work. No. He groaned inwardly. One night with Tess wouldn’t be enough. I still want her.

“I suppose I should spare you the sappy romance,” she teased, drawing him from his thoughts.

What did she say? Think. Romance. Right. “You don’t strike me as the type of girl who likes those,” he replied.

“I could go for a good action flick,” she agreed. “How do I do this exactly?” she asked looking down at the remote.

He scooted closer, his shoulder bumping against hers. His length throbbed against the restriction of his pants. She looked up at him, and her breath caught in her throat. He watched as her tongue darted out to wet her lips. So close—so beautiful. I want to taste her. I need to. Make a move.

“How do I…” she trailed off, locking gazes with him. “Nate.”

He growled low in his throat, enjoying the sultry way his name rolled off her tongue. “Tess.” He reached up and brushed strands of hair from her face. The silky locks slid through his fingers.

When she didn’t recoil, he moved closer, cupping her face with his free hand. His thumb traced tiny circles over her smooth cheek.

“Your pack won’t approve,” she spoke quietly.

“I don’t care what they think,” he answered honestly. He didn’t care. For years, he’d been following laws that made no sense to him. It didn’t bother him to break rules that he didn’t believe in. Tess was… there were no words to describe whatever was happening between them. The urge to claim her, to take her was driving him insane. He had to have her. Now.

Tess bit her lip, seemingly unconvinced.

Nate brushed a finger over her soft, plump lips. “They don’t have to know. It can be just tonight. No strings.” I’m such a liar. There is no way one night will be enough. We can sort that out in the morning. Maybe she feels the same.

Tess nodded with a sigh. Needing no further encouragement, he leaned in pressing his mouth to hers. Her lips were softer than he imagined. They were so full, and they moved harmoniously against his. More. I need to feel every inch of her silky skin.

He growled, pulling her closer, needing to feel her plush body pressed against his. Her mouth parted, and he slipped his tongue into her mouth, exploring every inch that she allowed him to.

Tess gripped his shoulders and shoved him back. He frowned momentarily confused until she slid one of her lithe legs over his waist and straddled him. Her lips found his again. The light kisses quickly changed to heated nips and feverish clashing of tongues. Their teeth gnashed together as they both fought for control. Her nails dug deliciously into his shoulders, marking him as hers. He reveled at the thought as the urge to make her his filled him.

He gripped her waist firmly, lifted her, and then laid himself over her on the couch. Tess mewed beneath him, her hands raking up and down his back, lifting the hem of his shirt up, and over his head.

Yes. I need more. I need her. Claim her.

I couldn’t put the book down. I actually stopped studying so could finish it. Nate and Tess are awesome. If you love reading about shifters then you will need to add this to your book list. I give it 5 out of 5. Bethany Shaw is great and I can’t wait for the next books.

This is the first book in a new shifter series with each story with its own HEA but with a continuing storyline. This story starts off with Tess, a Werecat, wounded and running for her life. She is being hunted by The Hunters, who hate all shifters and she stumbles into a bar being ran by a half shifter. Nate, a werewolf, is determined to help her even though there is a long standing feud between the two. Nate takes her to Sanctuary, a place were different species gather to hide from the world, but Tess is not welcomed because of what she is. Tess just wants to find her family while Nate just wants to save her. These two have an instant attraction but Nate knows his pack will not accept her and Tess knows this also. When the two leave to find Tess’ family there is trouble and Tess and Nate are forced to take shelter where the attraction comes ahead. They soon learn that they are true mates and this can and will lead to problems. When Nate’s sister is taken by the hunters, we learn there is a traitor in their mist. Will Tess and Nate have their HEA and will the find his siter before something bad happens?

I was given a copy of this book for a honest review…

stars-5-0._V192240867_
Okay to be honest I don’t give very many reviews because I feel that I cannot be objective enough to express my opinion regardless of whether or not I liked the book. Every once in awhile though a book will be brought to my attention with an intriguing story line and engaging characters, Bethany Shaw’s Sanctuary just so happens to be one of these books!

This was my first book by Ms. Shaw and it was truly an awesome read, I’ve always loved shifter novels and her’s was no exception. It had to be one of the best shifter stories I’ve read in a while!
after my literary journey with Tess and Nate I found myself wishing for their happily ever after, They deserve it! I thought.

The emotions the author expressed in the story seem to leap out and wrap themselves around the reader, especially during scenes of suspense, there was a tenseness in some of the scenes that you could easily feel. Similar to when you watch a suspenseful movie and find yourself thinking Be careful guys!

The first chapter does a nice job of grabbing your attention from the very start, you can very easily feel Tess’ emotions; her pain and fear, it’s these emotions that keep you reading!

Fantasy Romance Series, The Trilogy Begins

Jeramiah Poe isn’t just any character in the Realm of Fiction; he is Muse Master—Destiny Diviner—Mysterious Miskriat. Being of neither the Traditional Genre Provinces nor Independent, Poe enjoys an eternal lease on life, so long as his Scribbler keeps him out of publication.

Poe meets Kane, a seven-year-old boy from the Independent Horror Province, where he learns ancient codes are being broken and the horror that should be an act, is real.

But the evil clutching Octava is not new and Seven Arks have been sent to Earth to stop it.

Only something has gone wrong and Poe is commissioned as the 8th Ark of Octava to discover what has become of the Seven.

But his passage to Earth comes with revelations he’s not prepared for. Not only does his Scribbler not know of his existence, he’s a she that his human form seems allergic to.

Poe soon realizes that with each Ark he locates, his powers grow along with his feelings for the Scribbler. And the enemy will try and use both to gain control of the two realms.

Excerpt

“Mr. Poe?” Poe turned abruptly at the worried sound of Kane’s voice, and panicked at seeing his body had gone translucent. “I have to go now, Mr. Poe.”

“What’s wrong?” Poe reached for him and his hands passed through the boy. “Kane! Are you dying in your story?”

“I have to get back Mr. Poe. They’re coming now.”

“Why are you crying? You’ll come back first chance. I’ll be here. Do you know the name of your story, Kane?”

“I’m scared, Mr. Poe.”

The real fear in the boy’s voice alarmed him and before he could ask anything else, he was gone. A flash of panic sent Poe shooting into the air and out of the bog, aiming for Octava’s Athenaeum. He landed too quickly and went sprawling for several feet before bounding up and running up the hundred flight stairs of the realm’s library. Poe flashed his credentials as he walked in and the head Athenaeum Officer nodded. He didn’t have time to fiddle with the intricate Library’s search program and found instead the Librarian. “I need help locating a story, it’s direly important.”

The woman turned ever so slowly, her curt expression matching her pristine white dress-suit—the Athenaeum’s dress code. “Genre?”

“Horror,” he shot out.

She raised a brow for more information and Poe shook his head. “I don’t know, search them all.”

Her painful pace indicated the necessity of speed one never needed in Octava. “Do you happen to have a title?”

“No.”

She shook her head with raised brows at the screen. “There are thousands here. We could be here all day and evening.” But her tone indicated that was quite fine, she had nothing better to do.

“Kane!” Poe forgot he could search by name in the cast. “There’s a character named Kane in it.”

“Last name?”

“Not sure, I don’t think so, I think it’s his first.”

“I mean do you have a last name.”

“No, I don’t.” Poe wanted to strangle himself for not getting something so simple all this time.

“Traditional or non?”

“I don’t know,” Poe gasped.

The woman eyed Poe with confused concern before fluttering her fingers over the glass surface of the screen. “I find four possible matches.”

“The boy is seven. Look for a seven-year-old.”

“Ah. Sons of Insurrection. Has to be that one. It’s Independent and an SG. Paranormal Horror.”

“Coordinates,” Poe begged, trying not to yell.

He ran out the second she gave the information and took to the air upon exiting the building, barely missing several security officials in winged flight. Within five minutes, he landed at the story set. A dingy, rundown hospital with a dilapidation befitting the best of any horror story. The energy in the air sent a sensation through Poe that drew tiny bumps to the surface of his skin and a tingling along his spine.

Octava’s laws forbid anybody to barge right into a Story and so Poe had to carefully study the set around him. Spotting a lower window at the very bottom of the building, he hurried to it, remembering Kane’s comment about his playhouse under the stairs. Lowering to the ground he peered through the darkness. Nothing. Poe listened, closing his eyes, fighting to connect with the energy inside the insidious place.

OCTAVA TEASE BURST OF LIGHT

   Bio

Welcome to my world

My name is Lucian Bane and I’ve heard from many that I’m the odd one out. But really, I’m just a Husband, an Author, and a Christian Dom. Ah, maybe that’s the one that makes everybody pause. Oxymoron? Not at all.

As an author, I like to write stories—paranormal erotica—contemporary erotica and fantasy romance about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. But more importantly, I also attempt to make these stories a reality for couples everywhere by teaching them in the form of fiction how to add heat and passion to marriages and relationships that might not have it. Teach them how to build life-long commitments that form strong families, like I have with my own beautiful wife.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the Dom that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband.

As young men, our inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my inner Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is simply a real man.

5 roses – Clever & Unique Creativity

c28df879d600c3244ccaa9c1e7a70794[1]

  This clever and inventive way at looking at reality through the eyes of a fictional story brings one into a different perspective.  This is a paradox of modern day fairytale folklore and delves deep within your psyche.  The way the Author creates his characters and brings forth the long forgotten rhymes and tales is pure talented magic.  The balance between realism and fantasy is genius and completely imprints all genres into one unique and fascinating romantic, suspenseful, thrilling delight.   

“Look at me!”  Kane chomped quickly on his carrot.  “Ehhh.. what’s up doc!?”

5 -romantic hearts  – couples connecting

The thing about Jeremiah Poe is his outward compassion and compulsion to ensure everyone else around him is happy and always supersedes his own needs.  The connection between this unique couple is chalked full of emotion as they  begin their journey together, you feel everything the author is describing to you as they explore their fascination toward each other.  Every simple laugh, move, and touch they share is magnified by their need to know more, share more and experience everything.

“You’re going to get it.  You’ll get it how I say.  Like I say.  When I say, Scribbler.  I am Jeramiah Poe.  Muse Rider – Diviner of Destinies… and you are my Muse.”  ~Jeramiah Poe~

c5d7c1b272e04c598a11ee6e65d01d3e[1]

5 erotic lips loving lusty scenes

Lucian Bane is not known as an erotic artist for nothing, yes he gives Jeramiah Poe his sexy time!  These incredibly spicy escapades left me heavy breathing, heart pounding, blood rushing to every nerve, and writhing in some sort of painful yet rewarding fulfilling wonder!  The fair spinster, Charlotte knows how to weave a powerful seduction spell all OVER her naïve hunk-o-hero!

“My… what a great big penis you have.  The better to fuck you with my dear.”

~Charlotte a.k.a. J.P. Howe~

 1e8bfe385607d29bab7296780573c491[1]

5 tears – emotional-thrilling-dramatic

The emotional discovery these characters brings out in you is everlasting.  Kane is the real hero in this story and brought to life as you go through all feelings of rage, laughter, love, angst, and horror.  This little light of love has the power to destroy the most darkest of souls.  This character alone will keep you coming back for more, he brings out all the protective instincts, care, and nurturing parenthood could and ever would bring. 

e34d002f2c615540c6cbbdb4f49dae59[1]

Open up your portal of musical imagination readers, this author has brought the BOOM down on fantasy/reality evolution.

“Fiction is just a mirror of reality for the most part.  Many things that happen in fiction don’t even happen here.  But as far as pain and sadness.  Joy and love, life and death, it’s all real here.  Here it’s real.”

~Lucian Bane~

werwolf wars SYNOPSIS

October 23, 2014
Sarah Davies has had what some might call a string of bad luck; she just calls it devastating. She’s suffered the loss of loved ones as well as a kidnapping, and now her family thinks she is dead. Abandoned in the middle of New Mexico with crazy werewolves chasing after her, she can only trust her companion, Vincent McKinley. As they strain to survive the wilderness and evade their assailants, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly bonding with Vincent. He is kind and caring and Sarah can see them forming something far greater than friendship. But she has lost so many loved ones in the past; it terrifies her to open her heart to anyone else.

Vincent McKinley has sworn to protect Sarah with his life, but their pursuers seem hell bent on making him break his word. Determined to keep his promise, Vincent goes to extreme lengths to keep Sarah safe. Together, they work side-by-side to devise a plan that will stop their enemies for good. As tensions mount, so do their feelings for each other. Will they get the chance to explore their emotions, or will their enemies catch up to them first?

Lost and Found 

A FIVE PAW Read

 

Finally Vincent gets his story and I loved it!! This book was action packed from the first sentence. Sarah and Vincent are an unlikely couple but when push comes to shove they are unstoppable. Vincent has never been taking seriously because he is a fun loving an likes a good joke, but underneath it all lies a strong wolf who takes caring for those he loves very seriously. Sarah just lost two more people who she loved more than life itself, but she doesn’t let it get her down for long and she is determined to get her revenge. These star-crossed lovers are on the run for their lives from the Luna Pack but they let nothing get in their way to get back to their family. Even with all the danger that surrounds them they manage to fall in love. Will they be able to have their HEA or will their enemies successes in destroying them? This is a must read! Yes you will also get to see the other couples in this series and see their futures also.

I was given a copy of this book for a honest review…

Wolf-Spirit-HD-Wallpaper-by-wolfhowl10
Such a great ending to this series, everything was wrapped up and there were no unanswered questions in the end. Overall it was a great read and full of lots action that literally kept Sarah and Vincent on the run non-stop till the very end of the book.

Sarah, was a lot more confident then I first assumed she was and suffered from more guilt then I first thought. When she thought she did the right thing with Preston only to have him end up being killed she took on so much guilt due to her telling him no.

Vincent, he was more down to earth then you would think from the previous books. The always joking werewolve did it more out of a self defense so no one would know how much he was effected in the end by his fathers disappointment.

The epilogue I loved it! You get to see how each couple is doing in the end and how theyre all dealing with life now a days minus all the drama of being at war on a daily basis.
